Abstract

The author has reviewed the development of the concept that insulin resistance is related not only to the hypertensive state but potentially to the initiation and maintenance of high blood pressure. Potential sequelae of insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia, as they apply to atherogenesis, are also discussed. The impact of present antihypertensive pharmacologic therapy on insulin resistance is addressed, as are future directions in pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic management of hypertension. In addition, the author speculates on possible mechanisms leading to insulin resistance in hypertension.
